    Winemaker's Notes:

    Roggio del Filare, Rosso Piceno Superiore D.O.C. is a special selection of Rosso Piceno Superiore that has been in production since 1993. It is a combination of Sangiovese and Montepulciano that is aged in French barrique. This wine has a beautiful, bright concentrated color, a wide and elegant fragrance of red berries, and a dense yet elegant palate recalling the red berries and some characteristics from the oak. Excellent aging potential.

    70% Montepulciano, 30% Sangiovese. The Montepulciano comes from one special vineyard, while the Sangiovese is a selection from the estate. This wine has deep color and a rich texture and lushness. This comes from the vineyard selection, the harvest as well as extended maceration of about 21 days. The wine is matured in new French barrique for 12 months. Even with this treatment, the wine has amazing acidity and finishes long, rich and clean. This is a hearty, mouth-filling wine that is serious yet easy to understand. It will age beautifully and is delicious right now. The 2001 has been awarded the presitigious Tre Bicchieri Three Glass) Award from Gambero Rosso.
